Day 30 - Tied Down

Tightly tied down the front of my hair to create a small band of hair around me head.  The rest of the hair was brushed out into it's wavy pattern.

Day 29 - Big, Thick and Somewhat Crimped?

It's amazing what a little finger brushing can do - I wasn't expecting the hair to be so big and look so crimped.  Nevertheless, I'm not complaining - I actually thought it was pretty cool!

Day 28 - Messy Bun

Hectic Monday mornings especially require super-easy hairstyles.  The solution this Monday was in the form of a messy side bun.  The rest of the hair was smooth to give a bit of contrast and emphasize the styling on the actual bun.

Day 27 - Slick, Straight Ponytail

Whilst my other ponytails have had some element of volume to them, this time I decided to go for a sleek and poker straight ponytail.  Added a dash of gloss serum and tightly packed hair to give this look:

Day 26 - One Side Only

Tucked in hair at the back and left some of the hair with a loose wave at the front.

Day 25 - Roll on Friday

Created a side-parting and then rolled the right-sided portion of it, held up thanks to discreet pin.  Left the rest of the hair straight for a more modern look.

Day 24 - Half Up, Half Down (Coral Edition)

A quieter day like yesterday, meant a quieter style: half up and half down with a coral pin holding it together at the back.

Day 23 - Round The Twist

'Have you ever/Ever felt like this?/When strange things happen..' 

Ahem.  Excuse my theme-tuned-semi-hair-inspired nostalgia whilst I show you how I had my hair on the 23rd day of this year.  I opted for a twist round the head and then joined it the remaining hair to form a longer twist ponytail.

Here's the front:

And this, right here, is the back:

Day 22 - Clip It

Braided updo with the help of a black clip near the top...and that's all there is to it!

Simple & Elegant Bun Tutorial Now Online!

Remember the Bun from Day 12?  Well, I created a tutorial for it on Hushberry's YouTube Channel.  Check it out below (in HD too!) and let me know what you think.  I'll be adding extra styling pointers this week on how to keep it sleek and smooth!

Day 21 - Out There

Monday - new day, new week: plenty to be excited about. Decided I would start the week off with some Farrah Fawcett-esque flicks at the front, and leave the rest of the hair brushed out in its original wavy pattern.  

Day 20 - Swoopside

A laid-back afternoon calls for a laid-back style, right?  Must say, I like how the front of my hair slightly swoops in at the collarbone - very 90s (which is ironically back in fashion in 2013).

Day 19 - Sophisticated Curls

Earlier this week I tweeted that I would be wearing my hair either big or quite girly.  Well, enter the weekend and I had a bit of a shift in thought  -  the shift being: how about I go big but with a sophisticated touch?  The result was a focus on tighter curls at the bottom, with greater volume and very loose waves at the top (also adding a bit of head shaking/hair-ruffling - because sometimes it is necessary and oh-so-fun).

Day 18 - Bottom Braidout

Loose waves were created when I took out the braided bun of Day 17. Straightforward and casual - I enjoyed wearing that way!

Day 17 - Braided Bun

On this Thursday, I opted for two braids: one at the front and one at the back.  I joined them halfway and then rolled the back braid behind.

Day 16 - My Little Pony(tail)

Ah, ye olde ponytail.   Also, added a little lift to the bottom so it had a bit more swing to it.  Quick and neat - how could you never at least use it once?

Day 15 - 30 Second Faux-Bob

What do you do when you've hardly got any time to do your hair ahead of a busy schedule.?   Faux-bob.  In a matter of seconds.  All I required was a pretty headband.

Day 14 - Unraveled Bun

Last night, I slept in with the bun style I did on Day 12, unraveling it in the morning.  The curls were a bit tighter than shown in the photo below - I just wish there was some extra-extra strong hairspray that could have held in in place  ( sidebar: if anyone ever comes up with some industrial-strength hairspray of some sort, let a sister know).  Wore this style to one side, and it stayed rather resilient against the snowy/wet conditions of the day (I did wear a hat, by the way).

Day 13 - The Aftermath

I kept my hair in the Day 12 Bun overnight (you know how I like to carry over styles) So when I undid it, this was the result!

Day 12 - Simple, Yet Elegant Bun

So Saturday required a pretty yet simple-to-do style.  My choice? A bun.  With a looped pattern at the back.

Didn't get a perfect picture of the back, this one was taken after much maneuvering!

Day 11 - A Flicked Out Affair

Hello people, it's been a few days, so expect a few more posts tomorrow

 EDIT (having some delays transferring images, should work properly tomorrow ).

 This is how I wore my hair on Day 11  Straight, with flicks at ends, thanks to the very rare use of my curling tongs (I just rediscovered them several days ago)!

Day 9 - A Little Big Hair

So the time has come to say goodbye to my Day 6 Curls.  Gave the hair a thorough brush, ruffled fingers throught through the strands nearer to the top to create this Hair Of The Day.  It's a little big - could be bigger, but I figured this is a good starting point.  One day I'll make it super-big!

Day 8 - Sideswept Reloaded

Yesterday I mentioned that I was preserving the style I opted for on Day 6.  Well, today I took it out the bun and styled it to the right side.  Here's a photo with my beret (such a classic hat,especially in black!) :

And this is what it looked like without my wonderful beret:

Day 7 - Hair Preservation Mode

Ever liked a hairstyle that you wanted to keep longer than a day?  Well that's what happened with me today. Not so ready to let go of style I had yesterday, I still want to play around with it a bit more, but with today being quite busy I preserved the style by rolling in the curls in a loose bun behind. Going to play around with it a bit more...

Day 5 - Twist and Bun

Opted for a twist strand at the front, and a twisted bun behind.  Yes, I have a thing for twists at the moment.

Day 4 - Bed Head

This look is inspired from how I wore my head to bed, albeit slightly more tamed! Just brushed out and teased with fingers.

Day 3 - Sideswept

Sideswept parting with curls. I like the volume and shape of this style.

Day 2 - Sea-Shell Twist

Today, I opted for a sea-shell inspired twist at the front of my hair.  I also added one of my favourite accessories, a coral-bead hair-pin for a fully underwater themed effect (albeit, unintentionally).

Day 1 - New Year, New Hair

Happy new year!  I hope 2013 is your best year yet!  Today, I opted for a very simple style - with flick up-top and straightened hair below!
